Forward Kaiser Gates leaves Xavier for pro basketball

CINCINNATI (AP) Forward Kaiser Gates has decided to forego his senior season at Xavier and enter professional basketball, leaving the Musketeers without five top players from the team that won the Big East regular season title last season.

Gates tweeted his decision Saturday. He averaged 7.2 points and 4.6 rebounds as a junior, when he started 18 games.

The Musketeers also lost guards Trevon Bluiett and J.P. Macura along with forwards Sean O'Mara and Kerem Kanter to graduation. They earned the first No. 1 NCAA Tournament seed in school history, but lost to Florida State in the second round.
